We hope Alec Baldwin is a Radiohead fan!
Because his Broadway Shia LaBeouf just left him and the rest of the Orphans cast High & Dry!
We were pumped for Shia to share the stage with Jack Donaghy, but the play's producers say that will NEVER happen!
"Due to creative differences, the producers of Orphans and Shia LaBeouf will be parting ways and he will not be continuing with the production. An announcement on the replacement of the role of Treat will be made shortly."
Creative differences, eh? Surely that's code for something else!
Were Alec and Shia fighting over the big dressing room?
Did Shia drop acid one too many times during rehearsal?
Maybe producers finally saw Indiana Jones 4!
In any event, the show must go on — opening night is still set April 7 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre!
Something tells us Shia will really be rooting for the entire cast to break a leg, LOLz!
